TOKYO and MADRID, Sep 6. 2023 –, a global digital business and IT services leader, and Ferrovial, a global infrastructures operator that originated in Spain, have today announced a strategic partnership to drive the digital transformation of the infrastructure and transportation sector globally.
The alliance combines the resources, experience and expertise of both companies in their respective areas of specialization. The objective is to promote innovative solutions that improve efficiency and sustainability while exploring new opportunities in order to lead the way at a global level by leveraging both partners' services and products in various fields, such as the construction and operation of data centers. NTT DATA's technology capabilities will accelerate the digitalization of Ferrovial in all its markets and will be applied to a diversified portfolio of projects, such as toll management systems on its toll roads. NTT DATA will act as Ferrovial's technology partner, focusing on growth in North America.
Moreover, as part of the agreement, NTT DATA will also establish a Center of Excellence in Digital Solutions for transport and energy infrastructures in Spain that will apply the most advanced digital solutions to address the sector's current challenges.
The center will be instrumental in driving and co-developing Ferrovial's global projects from Spain; it will address asset management, improve business planning tools, and develop solutions for operating energy infrastructures in a way that advances sustainability. This work will rely on technologies linked to automation, generative artificial intelligence, and digital twins to jointly explore their application in potential markets.
"The creation of the first center of excellence of its kind in the world, here in Spain, hinges on combining the two groups' complementary capabilities. From this unique initiative in Madrid, we will develop innovative solutions that will put us at the forefront of our industry," said Dimitris Bountolos, Information and Innovation Officer (CIIO) at Ferrovial.
It's not just that Ferrovial will apply these solutions to improve its own process performance; the experience of using them in the company's own projects will enable them to have an impact on the development of the broader industry by driving technological progress.
"The synergies with Ferrovial will enable us apply all our tech expertise in the infrastructure and transportation industry, which has a major impact on developments in other industries. Driving the digital transformation in this industry provides benefits at all levels, both in organizations and in society at large," says Sergi Biosca, CEO of NTT DATA Spain.
According to Noriyuki Kaya, Chief Digital Assets Officer at NTT DATA, Inc., "This agreement is strategic for the NTT DATA Group because it is a tangible example of how we can combine the transversality of an international group and our end-to-end capabilities with Ferrovial's solid commitment to innovation and digitalization as vectors of growth at a global level".

The company operates in more than 15 countries and has a workforce of over 24,000 professionals worldwide, close to 5,500 of them in Spain.
